Facts About Family Violence

While not all children who witness violence suffer direct physical abuse, they frequently develop long-term behavioural and psychological problems. Exposure to violence can affect children’s brain development and ability to learn, and lead to a wide range of behavioural and emotional issues such as anxiety, aggression, bullying, phobias, and insomnia.

(Alberta Children and Youth Services, October 2008. Available: Child Abuse / Children Exposed to Violence Information Sheet)

Violence against women happens in all cultures and religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group.


Women's Voices

Daily groups help with not feeling like you are the only idiot who fell for a partner’s lies.
